Murray Rose, quick-thrashing young (17) Australian freestyler who won three gold medals in Olympics and thrives on diet of muscle-building seaweed jelly which his mother extracts from kelp gathered on Sydney beaches, clicked off 4:25.9 for 400 meters, 4:27.1 for 440 yards to better world records in New South Wales championships at Sydney (Jan. 12).
Warren Woodson, sharp-tongued University of Arizona coach who once told Tucson Towncats, "I know more about football than anyone here, and I'm smarter about football than you. Stay out of my business so I can do better," and later described his job as "the most miserable experience of my life," found way out of his misery. He resigned after five years and 4-6 record last fall. Other job shuffles: Georgia Tech Backfield Coach Frank Broyles to Missouri, succeeding retired Don Faurot; North Carolina Assistant Eddie Teague to The Citadel, replacing resigned John Sauer.
Bert Rechichar, sturdy Baltimore halfback, used his talented right foot to match Sam Baker's 52-yard field goal, also booted three others from 41, 44 and 42 yards out to lead West to 19-10 victory over East in Pro Bowl at Los Angeles.
College basketball continued on its merry way as conference races began to heat up, but spotlight was still on Kansas and North Carolina, all alone among nation's unbeaten major colleges (see page 4-4).
Fort Wayne became latest leader in seesaw Western Division of NBA, replacing slumping Rochester while Minneapolis won four out of five, were only two games out of first place. Boston had its troubles in East but still held three-game edge over Philadelphia as New York spurted to challenge Warriors for second.
